Artists in the Spotlight: Johan Barthold Jongkind
Portrait von Johan Barthold Jongkind Johann Barthold Jongkind was a Dutch landscape painter who spent most of his life in France. As artistic as the son of a Dutch customs official was, so tragic was his private life. His father wanted the son to do a similar job as a civil servant, but that was not for him. After his father died when Jongkind was 16 years old, he finally convinced his mother to let him study art. His first training began in The Hague with landscape painter Andreas Schelfhout . Thanks to a scholarship financed by King William, Jongkind finally traveled to Paris in 1846 to continue his studies there. There he became a pupil of Eugène Isabey and Francois Edouard Picot . After just 2 years in Paris, his first work was accepted for the Paris Salon. Jongkind's style found only moderate approval among the representatives of the Paris Salon. He could not sell enough works to finance his lifestyle. This was not least because he was not averse to alcohol. Therefore, he had already accumulated high debts after a few years and had to leave Paris in 1855 forced. Back in Rotterdam, he missed the Parisian lifestyle, the art scene and social opportunities painfully. Jongkind was a very sociable person who knew how to connect and make friends quickly. His artist friends in Paris had therefore not forgotten him. Within 5 years, a group of artists around Camille Corot raised money from the proceeds of their paintings to pay off Jongkind's debts in Paris. So Jongkind was finally able to make a fresh start in France and rented 1861 again a studio in Paris. During this time he met Claude Monet , Alfred Sisley and Eugene Boudin . Jongkind is said to have been a mentor to the young artists. He is considered one of the pioneers of impressionism. Monet said about Jongkind that he had trained his eye for the arts. Jongkind preferred to paint water-like landscapes, such as scenes on the Seine, the coasts of Normandy or the canals of his homeland. His special brushwork illuminated the water surface in a silvery shimmer, as in "The Seine and Notre Dame in Paris". However, Jongkind's talent was always endangered by his alcoholism and poor mental state. His salvation was the drawing teacher Joséphine Fesser, whom he met in Paris. She noticed how bad Jongkind was and since then has stood by his side. Fesser made his life run smoothly and accompanied him on all his travels. It is thanks to her that Jongkind was able to continue working and selling some works until his death.
